    Absolutely love that movie! When my oldest daughter was about 10, she watched it 3 times in one day. She’s still mad I didn’t take her with me when I went to Africa.

    Usually on April 1st you have to check your back because someone may have sticked a paper fish on...Also it is the day you get weird news like "the French police awarded trophy of Europe's most courteous force" or"a sardine plugged up the Old Port of Marseille" and the like...:)
    No such things this year... :mad: :thumbsdown:

    This year the joke is: "Protective masks are available in pharmacies..."
    An other good one is: "Tomorrow..."

    Last year my wife and daughter taped a silhouette of a gigantic cockroach to the inside of a lampshade. We don't really have an insect problem, and I hadn't seen a roach that big since I was little. Nevertheless, I went and fetched a fly swatter, with the intent of knocking it down and then either stomping on it or killing it with the fly swatter, depending on where it fell. The first blow on the lamp shade did not budge it. I whacked at it violently several more times, thinking it was a tough bugger, and then realized what had happened. Wife and daughter laughing convulsively, of course.

    They have assured me they would try nothing this year. But I saw the look they exchanged.

    Hey, guys, have I shown you my new bowls?
    [​IMG]
    Not that I'm bored or squirelly at all.
    They are rather nice- pyrex, pristine, $25.44. Another antique mall I hope will reopen someday.
    This sounds familiar. I have shown you my new bowls before, haven't I?
    I'll fix that sig line.

    When I was in Japan, one of the daily papers bit on a story about the discovery of a tribe of white vegetarians in New Guinea. They printed an apology on April 2.

    My new sig line may be apropos.

    Looks like we'll be stuck inside for a bit longer than expected, but at least the bar is well stocked! This is just the REAL stuff, the liqueurs are stored in the cabinet below.

    Whiskey's all you really need. (I did notice the vodka--that's a decent brand--good value.)

    I drink my vodka on the rocks--occasionally with orange juice. And I love martinis, but with gin.

    It's been a while since I last drank vodka (apart from some bison grass vodka I had a few months back), but I used to drink it neat :eek: I remember bringing some back from a trip to the East of Poland, and staying with some friends in France. A few of us went out for beers, then when we got back I pulled out a litre of over-proof vodka. I can't remember if there were 4 or 5 of us, but we saw it off, in shots, in under 10 minutes :eek: Then I went to bed, because it's not big, and it's not clever! :rolleyes:

    I stocked up on whiskey before this all got started. Grocery stores have plenty of beer and wine on the shelves. I bought two 6-packs of beer at the grocer just today. Both of which are now 5 packs.

    My favorite local liquor store is open for "buy online, curbside pickup," and they also deliver to my area. If I didn't already have a pretty good stash, I'd take 'em up on that.

    Mamba, is that a bottle of Russkiy Standart I saw peeking out from the back row? I don’t drink much vodka, but when I do, that’s my preference. Straight up and frozen.

    I'm guessing you're looking at Jeff's Russell's bourbon. The vodka I see is from Sweden: Svedka. But that Russian Standard is excellent--one of my favorites. Ketel One, from Holland, is number one with me.
